Associate of Arts in Art

Rend Lake College offers art courses designed to meet the needs and interests of students with varied art backgrounds and experiences.
Three options exist within the art program:

  1. A professional focus for individuals who wish to pursue a career in art and transfer to a four-year college or university majoring in art education, studio art or art history.
  2. A humanities focus for individuals who wish to learn about art in a historical and social context. (Ex., Art History I, Art History II).
  3. A personal focus for individuals who wish to pursue art interests either as an adjunct to a career program or as a creative outlet. 

Electives include: Ceramics, Commercial Art, Design, Drawing, Illustration, Jewelry, Painting, Photography, Printmaking and Sculpture.

Associate of Fine Arts in Art

Rend Lake College offers courses applicable to an Associate in Fine Arts Degree. General education courses are described in the Illinois General Education Core Curriculum. 

Because completion of the A.F.A. curriculum does not fulfill the requirements of the Illinois General Education Core Curriculum, students will need to complete the general education requirements of the institution to which they transfer. Consult with your high school counselor or college advisor for more information.

A pre-concentration in Speech, or a strong core of Speech Communication courses, prepares a student for teaching, public relations, broadcast media and a variety of business-related areas. A Speech major is considered good preparation for some professional programs. It is recommended that either one of the Humanities or Social Science electives be representative of a Third World culture (i.e., ANTH 1101, GEOG 1101, HIST 2107, POLI 2102 or PHIL 2105).

English
